Marama – Fetească Albă
Diamond Nova, 91 points – Femmes et Vins du Monde, Monaco, 2019
A grape variety with a history of almost a millennium, vinified for a long time as a rustic and unpretentious variety, but which rediscovered its virtues with the recent rebirth of Romanian wine. A wine born from selected grapes from the 15 hectares of Fetească Albă planted in the Domeniul Coroanei vineyard. The stum was extracted at low pressures and clarified naturally, cold. After a long fermentation at controlled temperatures, the wine was ennobled by maturation on fine yeasts for at least 3 months, with periodic batonnage. Feteasca albă is a friendly wine, defined by elegance and nobility, with intense and complex floral aromas.
The grapes, harvested mechanically, were crushed and kept for film maceration at temperatures between 8° C - 10° C for 12 hours. Light pressing followed and a slow fermentation, in stainless steel tanks, at controlled temperatures between 15° C - 17° C. The wine matured on fine yeasts for 3-5 months.
